Miami, Los Angeles… Houston.
It seems like just yesterday that you wouldn’t see those three toponyms paired together in the greater Italian wine world.
Only a few short years ago, the only hitching post that anyone knew in Texas was the capital. Yes, that’s Austin, the Groover’s Paradise, where the music flows and the guacamole and beer are still cheap.
But today, it’s Houston, my adoptive city, where all the European winemakers want to pour and sell their wines.
I couldn’t be more thrilled that the Chianti Consortium is coming back to my big small home town on Wednesday, May 17.
Please join me at 11:30 at the swank Hotel ZaZa for a seminar and walk-around tasting. Here’s the link to register.
I’ve done a tasting for them before. One of the most amazing and wonderful things about these events is the oohs and aahs that emanate from the tasters when they realize how much glorious Sangiovese is out there.
I hope you can join us! Thanks for the solidarity and support.
